The Bugle (photo) (audio)
The bugle was first created in the medieval times when a horn of a bull was used for military and hunting purposes. Pitched in B flat, the bugle is similar to the trumpet in that
respect. However, unlike the trumpet, the bugle has a large conical bore which produces a deep, loud sound. The bugle, thus, is perfect for playing outside. The very early bugles were semicircular in shape but by the nineteeth century, it took upon the trumpet-like appearance.
Bugles can only range over four or five notes. These four or five notes were enough for the military codified signals which were collected and made in the eighteenth century.
